Monday's News- A Full Festive Time

Our weekend started on Thursday due to the Holiday. We went to Chesapeake,Virginia to spend the holiday with Dad. I stated the holiday cooking on Wednesday. Thursday we were joined by, My Brother and his family, My Grandmother and Grandfather and My SIL and her family. We ended up with 14 people for our Thanksgiving meal. It was so nice and my Dad loved having all the folks in his house again. It amazes me how I still know my way around the kitchen. Not having Mom there was hard on a few of us,however I still feel at home there.

After we ate, the kids went out to play around....Took Critter to see the Blue Water tower,
He had never seen one.

Now this is a funny story... Across the street is an Old City Church.
Critter said to AuntieE " Wow...That is a big house".
Auntie E said "Oh that's a Church".
His reply "Oh Really?"
Then it dawned on us, that all he knows is churches at schools and the Big Church Building at McLean, Va (McLean Bible Church). At that church he goes from a huge Parking lot into a very large building. So we all had a good laugh. Now I will need to introduce him to some small churches sometime.

Friday my family and Dad went to see Christmas Town at Busch Garden. Oh there were lots of Blue lights in the villages.

I really loved that place. Got so many Ideas for Lighting and Christmas decoration.

Saturday we went to Colonial Williamsburg to do some shopping in the old merchant market.
I loved the feeling there.The sights and sound were so festive.
Arriving home late in the evening. We unpacked the car and went to bed.

Sunday we went to McLean Bible Church. Then went shopping at the Mall for the Angel tree kids. In the evening we went to get some lights for decorating the yard and porch. Our mail box was hit so we had to also purchase a new one to install. That is today's Project and of course the lights are on the list also.

So how was your weekend?
